Los Angeles (AFP) – actress Anne Heshey She died without a will, and her 20-year-old son filed papers with the court for control of her property.
Homer Lavon, Heche’s son with ex-husband Coleman Lavon, filed a petition in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday seeking permission to run his mother’s estate.
The petition states that Homer Lavon and 13-year-old Atlas Tapper, Heche’s son and ex-partner James Tupper, are its sole heirs.
The document says that the value of Heche’s property is unknown. This is often the case in such initial filings, before anyone has had the legal authority to assess the assets of the deceased person.
Homer Lavon also filed a petition requesting that someone be appointed to represent his brother’s interests in court.
Heche’s representative declined to comment on the filing.
On August 5, a car that Heche was driving jumped off a sidewalk, crashed into a house in Los Angeles and caught fire. She was declared brain dead on August 11, and she was kept alive on resuscitation machines for another three days until her organs could be donated.
Heitchey, 53, was among the biggest movie stars of the late ’90s, starred in opposites including Johnny Depp and Harrison Ford, and has acted consistently in film and television for more than three decades.
She was married to Colman Lavon, a television cam operator, from 2001 to 2009, and was in a relationship with actor James Tupper, from 2007 to 2018. She had a son with both of them.
